Ahmedullah stays away from ‘Odarpu Yatra'

Special Correspondent



Mohd. Ahmedullah

KADAPA: Minister for Minority Welfare Mohd. Ahmedullah, representing Kadapa Assembly constituency, did not turn up for. Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy's “Odarpu Yatra” in Pulivendula on Tuesday.

The Minister on Monday announced his resolve to take part in the yatra saying that he owed his political growth to former Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy.

While five MLAs, A. Amarnath Reddy, G. Srikanth Reddy, C. Adinarayana Reddy, P.M. Kamalamma, K. Srinivasulu, and MLC Y.S. Vivekananda Reddy, participated, Mydukur MLA D.L. Ravindra Reddy, Kamalapuram MLA G. Veerasiva Reddy and two Congress MLCs, Shaik Hussain and B. Chengalrayulu, did not turn up.

Keeps low profile

Mr. Jaganmohan Reddy appeared at home in his native Pulivendula constituency and kept controversies at bay during his two-day yatra that concluded at Idupulapaya on Tuesday night after he consoled 14 bereaved families.

“People know all the developments since nine months and I won't speak about them,” Mr. Jagan said and expressed his indebtedness to the people for patronising his father for three decades and him now. Apart from six MLAs of Kadapa district, Kadapa MLC Y.S. Vivekananda Reddy, former Minister Konda Surekha, her husband and MLC Konda Murali and Congress MLC Pulla Padmavathi participated in the yatra.

Ms. Surekha expressed confidence that the Congress high command would recognise Jagan's commitment and facilitate his “Odarpu Yatra” in Telangana soon. Mr. Vivekananda Reddy described reports that the “gap between Jagan and high command widened” as a figment of imagination. He hoped that the party high command would surely encourage his nephew (Jagan) to carry on the yatra and strengthen the Congress in the State.

‘No directive'

Stating that Congress high command did not instruct anybody to stay away from ‘Odarpu Yatra', Jammalamadugu MLA C. Adinarayana Reddy wondered if Union Minister N. Purandeswari had exaggerated the outcome of her discussions with Congress president Sonia Gandhi's advisor Ahmed Patel.

In a move aimed at Jagan's detractors, Rayachoti MLA G. Srikanth Reddy dashed off a letter to Chief Minister and CLP leader K. Rosaiah from Pulivendula seeking action against former Ministers J.C. Diwakar Reddy, D.L. Ravindra Reddy and P.Shankar Rao for addressing media conferences from the CLP office and targeting YSR and Jagan. He urged the Chief Minister to initiate action on them lest the people construed that they had his tacit permission.
